HCMC – The Cao Lanh-An Huu expressway project linking Tien Giang and Dong Thap provinces in the Mekong Delta region will require over VND6 trillion in investment funded from the State budget, according to a prefeasibility study report of the project submitted to the prime minister by the Ministry of Transport.
The 30-kilometer expressway, part of the Hong Ngu-Tra Vinh expressway, which is 188 kilometers long, will have four lanes, the local media reported.
The ministry proposed beginning site clearance and resettlement processes in the 2022-2023 period, breaking ground for the expressway in 2023 and putting it into operation in 2026.
The project will comprise two subprojects, with the first section 18.2 kilometers in length in Dong Thap Province and the other over nine kilometers in length in Tien Giang Province.
Work on the expressway should start soon to enhance connectivity between the route and National Highway 1 and some sections of the North-South expressway and meet the transport demand in the Mekong Delta region, according to the ministry.
The expressway will start at the My An-Cao Lanh expressway, about four kilometers from the An Binh intersection, in Dong Thap Province’s Cao Lanh District, and end at the Trung Luong-My Thuan expressway in Tien Giang Province’s Cai Be District.
